Knowledgeable advice??

Just been for mot and have failed it due to
Trailing arm rubber bush bonding deteriorated resulting in excessive movement offside rear axle and near side.
I was told that you can't replace the bushes so as I result have to replace whole rear axle is this true?

Already on a 9th gen? - how many miles have you covered?

Some said the same thing about the 8th gen bushes/axle, is complete tosh as replacement bushes are available. I have replaced mine.

Did they really change the design so drastically on the 9th gen?

Have just done a quick eBay search but the only entry that looked close didn't have convincing content that it was truly compatible with the 9th gen

Pfft, you have me hunting for nuthin'.

Report a post in the thread and a nice Moderator will move it for you.

Then get searching for 8th gen rear beam bushes!
